For Dr Clem Scott, Chicago, a Medical Surgeon in Chicago told our correspondent that Gastrointestinal perforation (GP) occurs when a hole forms all the way through the stomach, large bowel, or small intestine. It can be due to a number of different diseases, including appendicitis and diverticulitis. It can also be the result of trauma.
Scott explained that GP also known as ruptured bowel, is a hole in the wall of part of the gastrointestinal tract. The gastrointestinal tract includes the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. Symptoms include severe abdominal pain and tenderness. … The pain is usually constant in nature.
His words: “A gastrointestinal perforation is a hole that can develop anywhere in your gastrointestinal (GI) tract, which runs from your throat to your rectum. Food travels down your esophagus, into your stomach, where it empties into your small intestine, and then into your large intestine, or bowel. If the perforation occurs in your bowel, it may be called a perforated bowel.
Sepsis Alliance, a medical research firm in America stated that: “If your GI tract is perforated, the contents may spill into your abdomen and cause peritonitis, an infection. Such an infection can lead to sepsis. Sometimes called blood poisoning by members of the general public, sepsis is the body’s often deadly response to infection or injury. Sepsis kills and disables millions and requires early suspicion and treatment for survival. Nigeria’s state and Federal Government should urgently help this Nigerian bundle of talent, Peter Thomas.”
